With the spring weather finally here, here are some tips for your pet:
- Ensure that your pet’s vaccinations are up to date. Cats are more likely to roam outdoors and increase their territories. This makes them more likely to fight and be exposed to viruses that we can protect them from such as Feline Leukaemia.
- Male dogs are likely to run off after the scent of bitches in season and this too exposes them to more viruses as they come into contact with other dogs. Spring time also means more puppies and those early vaccinations are vital.
- Daffodils in the house in a jar of water may look pretty but be aware that indoor cats that may drink the water or eat the flowers can end up very ill. The same goes for lilies in the home.
- Ensure that your cats are neutered from 5-6 months to prevent unwanted pregnancies and fighting.
- On a more positive note; at Horsebridge Vets, we advise that all pets that have over-indulged over the winter are taken out for longer walks in the kinder weather to work off their fat rolls.
They have an amazing team here. All friendly and welcoming and make you feel at ease even when you are worried. They great your pets like they are their own.
